Hawaii Five-O Wiki

Ma Ke Kahakai (Shore) is the 20th episode of the first season in the remake of Hawaii Five-0.


Steve and Danny stumble upon a homicide case while out searching in the jungle for Hawaiian petroglyphs. While on a visit with Chin Ho to visit their dying aunt, Kono learns what really happened to end Chin Ho's career with the Honolulu police.


Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett and Detective Danny Williams are hiking in the Ko'olau Range when they discover a dead body. Trying to get to the body Steve falls, breaking his left arm. Leaving Steve with the body, Danny runs to the mountaintop to get reception and calls Lieutenant Chin Ho Kelly and Officer Kono Kalakaua for help.

Eventually, both Steve and the body are airlifted out of the area.

With Steve in hospital being treated, Danny, Chin and Kono regroup to compare information and all agree that whoever dumped the body out there probably hoped that it would never ever be found and that wild boars would eventually devour it.

Chin soon learns that the victim is fifty-three year old fisherman, Jack Leung.

When Steve rejoins them, the team learn that the death may be connected to a case concerning a young woman named Vicky Hailama who Jordan Rutherford strangled to death but Jordan has seemingly disappeared.

Hawaii Five-0 soon realized that Leung came across plans that Jordan's father, Donald Rutherford had and when Donald found out, he killed Leung.

Steve and Danny arrest Donald and also find and stop the plane intending to bring Jordan to Hong Kong, China which means that Vicki Hailama's parents will finally get justice.

In the meantime, Chin and Kono learn that their aunt Mele is dying with Chin admitting that it was their uncle, Keako who stole the $200,000 in the hope of getting a kidney from the black market so that it could save Mele.

As such, Chin took the fall for his uncle, leading to Chin's own reputation as a cop being damaged.

Later, as the Hawaii Five-0 team watch fireworks and listen to a band, Chin receives a phone call and informs Kono that Mele has passed away.
